Twenty Years of Great Big Sea!

Well twenty-one actually, having played their first gig in March 1993 at Memorial University in their home province of Newfoundland and releasing their self-titled album in that same month.

But Great Big Sea are still in the midst of a victory lap, celebrating their now 20-plus years with a new album and a tour that’s making a stop on in London on Thursday, April 11.    

To the still uninitiated, Great Big Sea have become a Canadian staple in the music world. Riffing on the folk songs of their native Newfoundland, they incorporate contemporary sounds of rock and pop, which has earned the band wide appeal, as well as 11 Juno award nominations.

The band is also well represented in our collection – you'll find their entire discography here, and even a biography of multi-instrumentalist member Bob Hallett.

Happy Listening!
